Jacobs remains in the mix in Sochi

Thursday, February 13, 2014   by: Brad Coccimiglio

With another victory, Brad Jacobs is right in the thick of things in men’s curling at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

With a 7-6 win over Denmark on Thursday morning the Jacobs rink improved to 3-2 and took over sole possession of fifth in the standings.

With the game tied at six, Jacobs would make a draw to score one and give Canada the win. The shot came after Denmark would score a pair in the ninth end thanks to a takeout by Denmark skip Rasmus Stjerne to tie the game at six.

Jacobs would fall behind 2-1 through three ends before scoring a pair in the fourth end and two more in the sixth end 5-4 lead. The teams would trade singles in the seventh and eighth ends.

In other men’s action on Thursday, Great Britain improved to 4-1 with a 5-3 win over Team USA. Russia picked up their first win of the tournament by beating Switzerland 7-6 thanks to a steal of three in the tenth end. The other game saw Sweden improve to 4-1 by defeating Norway 5-4, handing the Norwegians their first loss of the tournament.

On the women’s side, Team Canada, skipped by Jennifer Jones, beat Denmark 8-5 in the early draw to improve to 4-0 heading into their fifth game, against Switzerland. Jones then improved to 5-0 with an 8-5 win over the Swiss.
